Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Kim + Scott

As Kim + Scott's guests arrived to Magnolia Plantation Carriage House, they were welcomed by some of the couple's favorite songs like "Steal My Kisses" by Ben Harper and "Grow Old With Me" by Adam Sandler. Right before the bride walked down the aisle, two and a half year old Ethan beared the rings down the aisle in the most adorable tuxedo and executed his job perfectly. A stunning Kim was escorted by her father down the aisle to "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel, and was greeted at the alter by her beaming groom. The couple exchanged vows and sealed them with a kiss! As the newlyweds walked down the aisle as husband and wife, guests tossed lavender into the air for a one of a kind exit.

Cocktail hour began and guests enjoyed delicious hors d'oeuvres and a specialty, Southern cocktail made with Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka and lemonade named the "Charleston Palmer". Guests lounged in mix-matched vintage pieces provided by 428 Main that were placed around the dance floor for a laid back atmosphere. The escort cards were handmade tree wood name cards. These wood escort cards were made from trees native to South Carolina - how cool! As guests grabbed their escort cards, they replaced them with a Polaroid photo of themselves to hang on the boards in place of their name card. One photo to keep for themselves and one for the newlyweds to treasure!

Guests entered into the rustic reception with hints of yellows and greens radiating throughout the carriage house.  Guests were welcomed, a blessing was given and dinner was served! The Lowcountry Slider Station offered pulled pork barbecue, fried green tomatoes, fried chicken and mini waffles with all the fixin's! The Southern Comfort Station had mini meat loaf bites and a vegetable succotash. Lastly, the Grits Station offered build-your-own grits! Shrimp, sausage, bacon, cheese and more were used to top the delicious stone ground, cream grits.

After dinner, Kim + Scott bounced back and forth between the dance floor and their guests - never without smiles spread across their faces. Later in the reception, the cake was cut and King of Pops arrived to hand out their oh so delicious ice pops! Engraved forks atop WildFlour Pastry's cinnamon buns were the wedding favors: a perfect late night snack or breakfast for the next morning! Kim + Scott enjoyed one final dance alone before their sparkler exit amongst their closest family and friends.

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Melody + Andrew

Melody and Andrew said their vows at the Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church nearby and then were followed by their friends and family to Magnolia Plantation for the reception. The carriage house was decorated with trees by Plants Alive that added to the already rustic feel of the Carriage House. Ivory and beige linens and white flowers popped against the foliage and dark wooden setting. The night was filled with amazing food and dancing as everyone celebrated the union of this lovely couple.

A passing shower couldn’t damper this beautiful bride’s day as she did her first look on the red bride on the Magnolia Plantation property, joined by her groom and stunning bridesmaids. Melody’s bridesmaids were each dressed in different long, beige dresses that were beaded and sequined, and were the perfect accent to Melody’s white beaded wedding gown. The décor of the reception also has an ivory and beige color scheme. Both the bridal party’s bouquets and arrangements in the Carriage House were full of white peonies, accented by slight hints of pink. Melody’s bouquet was uniquely arranged in dusty miller with pink and white peonies and roses and bright magenta astilbe. Each table was set with multiple small clusters of white flowers and cotton with hints of pink in vintage glasses and assorted mercury glass votives. The ivory draping stood out against the dark beams and potted trees that lined the center of the venue and led to the dance floor.

After a romantic ceremony at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church, guests of Melody and Andrew joined them at plantation for cocktail hour, drinks being served by Squeeze. Friends and family mingled in the carriage house and outside by the fire pit, lit by café lighting. The bridal party was soon announced in, followed closely behind by the newlyweds. The couple shared their first dances and cut their cake by Alisa Channell before stations were opened for dinner. Southern inspired stations by Mosaic included: BBQ sliders, skewers, shrimp and grits and mac and cheese, all presented on vintage wooden stands and boxes to match the décor.

Friends and family lit a path with sparklers to the white Rolls Royce awaiting the newlyweds. The bride and groom drove away, waving goodbye, ready to begin the next chapter of their lives together!
